Joe Exotic asks for release after cancer diagnosis
The news that Joe Exotic has asked for a pardon and / or just a release for prison comes along once a month, but this time it’s with sad news: Exotic has been diagnosed with prostate cancer, and isn’t doing so well.
“John Phillips [his lawyer] has received my medical records from FMC Fort Worth and my PSA count came back very high for prostate cancer,” he said on Twitter. “The prison has approved testing to verify what stage it is in. My body is tired, I have lost a tremendous amount of weight, the mouth sores are out of control, I throw up more than I eat.”
Of course this is Joe Exotic, so it gets a bit weird after that: “I don’t want anyone’s pity, what I need is when John Phillips gets the evidence he is working on, I need the world to help him get President Biden, VP Harris and the Attorney General to listen to the evidence and see that it’s not just city cops out of control with corruption, but his very own Department of Justice and make this right and sign that pardon that Trump left behind so I can go home and get proper medical care and proper food.”
Erm, not sure saying the Justice Department is corrupt is going to help Joe…
